Certification Camps has developed a comprehensive training / delivery format which focuses on learning beyond the core content accessible to any Microsoft training provider. Our program incorporates interactive demonstrations with explanations which go beyond the content of the book. Additional content, videos, labs & demonstrations are provided to expand on advanced topics - providing additional insight and perspective. Certification Camps training is NOT your typical book & PowerPoint presentation found at any local training center.
As a Microsoft Certified Partner with Gold Learning Competency - we adhere to the strict guidelines, standards and requirements to use Microsoft's exclusive curriculum. More over - our standards go beyond the "minimum requirements" set forth by Microsoft Learning.
We leverage our partnership benefits of courseware customization to build end to end technology training solutions. Students gain practical skills which can be implemented immediately.
At most training centers - learning starts on the first day of class and ends on the last day. Our boot camp training program is designed to offer resources before, during and after.
During Camp - While attending camp - you will work hands on with an industry leading "real world experienced" Microsoft Certified Trainer.
After Camp - After your camp is over - learning does not stop. You receive 6 months remote access (Lab on Demand) to your classroom lab environment.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS FACILITIES
CAMPUS - Certification Camps invested $150,000 into a complete training center construction build out. Larger classrooms, no sound transference between training rooms, new desk / executive leather chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8500 / 8700 with an Intel i7 (4th generation), minimum of 16GB memory (Most with 32 GB) and most with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
LODGING - We use the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites Lakewood Ranch. This "upgraded" hotel offers extremely comfortable beds, great breakfast and very fast (Verizon) internet access.
NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS DIFFERENCE
Certification Camps provides an in-depth hands on learning environment. Our instructors teach using demonstrations and explain concepts beyond the scope of the courseware. The best instructors are contracted from all across the US. These professionals are real world consultants who actually implement these technologies. Certification Camps knows our clients work in the "real world" and it only makes sense to have an instructor with the experience in the real world.
Facilities - Many of our competitors over-crowd classrooms by placing 2 to 3 students per desk and 20+ students per instructor. Often these companies "extend" the life of very old equipment with slow performance on the software used today. Our average class size is 8 students. Our facilities have the best equipment with the most comfortable, focused environment for learning.
Instructors - Our CEO, Chester Flake holds one of the rarest Microsoft Certifications - the Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant (MCLC) Certification. This certification reflects a commitment to make sure our instructors are also actively engaged in real world consulting projects. Students expect a professional who can answer questions and demonstrate the technology.
Face to Face Training - We believe the best way to interact and learn is face to face training. Many of our competitors which offer local training are simply providing students with headphones/mic to attend class with an instructor at a remote location.
Test Pass - We offer a free retake voucher (if needed) for each of the exams required for certification. Any training center offering a "100% pass guarantee" would have to use unethical practices or unlimited test vouchers (which is not likely or practical).
Distractions - Students often look for a "local" training center so they can be close to home and work. Boot camp requires a tremendous time commitment during the program. Long class hours combined with self study each evening. The goal of boot camp is to achieve certification in a fraction of the time. We strongly recommend students attend camp away from home and work in a focused, distraction free environment.
Boot Camp - Boot camp is an accelerated training focused on teaching technology and testing students on the official exams. Most training providers "added" boot camps to the existing standard training classes they offer. These training centers think a boot camp is just a regular class where you send the student home with a voucher on the last day. Certification Camps administers exams throughout the camp. Equally important - not every trainer can teach a boot camp and not all courseware is designed for boot camp format. Our trainers know the boot camp format and our courseware is designed for accelerated learning.
Florida - Certification Camps has one of the most scenic locations boasting some of the best weather in US. We believe students should have a comfortable and inviting atmosphere while attending these otherwise intense programs. We place our location, facilities and amenities up against that any competitor.
